Also, for the love of god, if a kid wants to join the military, make sure they get their job guaranteed, and they join a branch that offers a sign on bonus. I lucked out job wise joining the Marines, but still didn’t get a bonus, which wasn’t a bad thing, but I would have been a pretty big financial help starting out in life. If they’re joining as a way to serve, and get a start in life, choose an easier branch. I love my Marines, but it’s hardly the easy route.
When I served, there weren't any sign-on bonuses. However, I had a good recruiter. After testing, they found me in a high percentage on the tests and the "powers that be" in OKC got in touch with the recruiter in Guymon and told him to get me interested and signed up with the Army Security Agency. When he visited with me, he told me to be sure and avoid signing up for OCS until I had gotten my MOS. He said that with my scores, they would be trying to get me to do OCS. He also explained that if I didn't succeed in OCS, then the Army could assign me to whatever MOS they wanted, regardless of what I had asked for. So, I followed his advice and made sure that I had an MOS under my belt.
Didn't do a thing for my after-military career as what I did was not a skill used in the private sector. The best I could have done was to work for the government, specifically at NSA or wherever because of my work skills. That wasn't what I wanted to do, and a career in the ASA would have been harmful to a family man. Too many hardship tours where one couldn't take one's family.
Something I rairly admitted during my working career was I only had an 11th grade education. I quit school at 17 and joined the Navy. I simply was not able to learn the way they were trying to teach me in school everything I accomplished after that was self taught. Did well enough on the Navy entrance exams to pick any navy school I wanted, but was so turned off by school I entered the fleet as an aviation electronics tech wanna be. Did self studies and managed to make 3rd class PO in 3 years. After I left the Navy I managed to pass the FCC Radio Operators test and got a 2nd class FCC license. The licence opened doors into two way radio and at the height of my working carrier I was general manager of a Motorola company owned service center.
It can be done even without a HS education, I was never without a job when I wanted one and did fairly well money wise throughout my working life. Not a recommend carrier path but it worked for me.
